In his installation A Butterfly’s Eye View artist Eiji Watanabe eviscerates butterfly field guides, releasing the delicately cut insects and pinning them to the walls around the gutted textbooks. It’s almost as if he bestows life to these little paper creatures, and yet they often remain organized in a tight grid, an entire new species of butterfly. The images came via a number of Flickr accounts.
